Has anyone on this list done this?
Been there, done that...several times. Using both bucked rivets (interiot panels removed also) & Olympics (removing only damaged exterior panels).
1) the streetside panel on a friend's 1964
GlobeTrotter - using Olympic Rivets, 2) our streetside panel on our (since sold) 1964

It's not difficult, but it can be a bit intimidating the first time you're getting started. We don't have as many pics of the bucked rivet process because I was the shooter & Mr.InsideOut was the bucker and there was nobody around to take pictures. It's actually a pretty fun & rewarding job - not one you do very often though if you're lucky!
